Did Panasonic Inadvertently Leak The Canon EOS 7D Replacement Specs?

EOS 7D Replacement

Thanks Alan for the link.

The crop above is taken from a slide of Panasonic’s presentation of the GH4, and shows some (supposed) specs for the EOS 7D replacement. I previously reported about that. The whole presentation found its way to the web, and to the forums of Personal View as a downloadable PDF.

On page 10 you have the comparison with Panasonic’s competitors, and with a speculated successor of the Canon EOS 7D (price & specs). These specs differ from previously reported specs, and describe a DSLR without any exciting feature, and look as if they were made by Panasonic’s marketing department. Hopefully Canon will surprise us with something more innovative. To sum up, the EOS 7D replacement specs shown at Panasonic’s GH4 presentation are:

  • 20MP sensor
  • ISO 100-12,800 (25600 extended)
  • 1/8000 shutter
  • Quiet shutter mode
  • Phase detect AF, 19 area
  • 8fps continuous shooting
  • Buffer size – 15 raw, 126 JPEG
  • 3.0″ 1040k dot LCD (touch screen) – not articulated
  • Weather sealed (as original 7D)
  • 910g weight

To compare, the other rumored spec list for the EOS 7D replacement:

  • ~24MP sensor with Dual Pixel CMOS AF
  • Auto-Focus system similar to the EOS 5D Mark III (61 points), possibly the same as 5D3
  • High frame rate, 10-12 fps
  • “high grade” weather sealing, like Canon’s professional DSLRs
  • Dual Digic V+ processor
  • Single card slot
  • WiFi & GPS
  • Innovative video features
  • Price around $2000
  • Very good ISO performance

Hard to believe that the specs shown at Panasonic’s presentation have something to do with Canon’s next APS-C flagship. And it is hard to make predictions for the EOS 7D replacement, which should be announced around Q3 2014.
